    The power steering pump goes bad on my '95 accord about every month to six
    weeks. The new power steering fluid turns black in about two weeks. I keep
    changing the fluid and it continues to turn black and I have to replace
    the pump. I can not find any leaks. When I install the new pumps they work
    like new, but won't last. I have not found any of them getting hot! Does
    anyone have any ideas why the fluid is turning bad and the pumps going

    Honda type. I buy it a Advance Disc. auto, and at NAPA. It is made by Gunk
    and is specifically made for honda use!

    Hi Steve, The pump starts squealling and the wheels get hard to turn. When
    this happens I replace the pump, clean out the old fluid and add new Honda
    type fluid, and after that, it will work great for a while!

  7. First of all, stop using Honda type fluid.

    Use Honda fluid.

    good chance it's a bad rack, seals are breaking down. a pump should
    last a lot longer.
